Community Planning Toolkit – Working Together
This section of the Toolkit focuses on how the CVS (Community and Voluntary Sectors) can work with and influence other sectors in effective ways. It looks at working within Community Planning structures and the wider context; building supportive alliances; and advocacy and lobbying for change.
As part of its preparatory work on setting up new councils the Department of the Environment will issue guidance on Community Planning and engagement arrangements. The Department has indicated that this guidance will allow for flexibility within each of the new council areas.
